OLYMPIA (Mar. 28, 2013) — Jeff Johnson, President of the Washington State Labor Council President, AFL-CIO, issued the following statement in response to the release of Gov. Jay Inslee’s 2013-15 Budget Priorities for a Working Washington.

“With the release of his budget priorities and proposed list of tax exemptions/loopholes that should be closed, Governor Jay Inslee is demonstrating the type of bold leadership that won him the support of the labor movement during his campaign. After four years of devastating budget cuts, our Governor is stating loud and clear that it is time to invest in our state’s fundamental values and principles; that it is time to apply common sense to closing tax loopholes that don’t strengthen our educational system, our communities, or our economic vitality. These proposals are a good first step towards moving our state in the direction of shared prosperity.”
